Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

Had front brakes replaced by original dealer after noticing noise from brakes. Ever since then the front end clunks at low speed and especially when cold. Returned it to original dealer who said that nothing was wrong. Had my local garage mechanic look at it and he greased/oiled the bushings. It stops cluncking for a while, but I've had this done before and it only lasts for a short time. Took in to a different Chrysler dealer a few years later (first one went out of business) and they recommended about a $1000.00 worth of work. I said "not today" and took car home. I do not trust dealers. Everytime I take a car in they come up with questionable problems that need servicing.

Sounds like loose parts when going over speed bumps or on a rough road.

i have had this problem also. I have had it "fixed" a couple of times but after a few months it always comes back. So it is still not fixed.

Sway bar problems started shortly after purchasing our used 2006 T & C from our local dealer. Dealer replaced w/in a year of purchase. One year later replaced again. Ten months later had to be replaced again. Was told that they need to be greased at every oil change- which we have been doing. Now just had replaced again about one and a half years after last time. Getting ready to make last payment on our 5 year loan. Cannot believe in 5 years we have had to replace these 4 times. Also have had issues with brakes- in the last year have had to have front brakes done 3 times. This started with a caliper sticking causing the rotors to warp. One my fourth set since purchasing. After this last repair they cleaned a lot of rust and corrosion so hopefully the caliper will not stick again causing the rotor to warp.
